The attraction of dirt and debris is a natural occurrence that happens to every deck box over time. Because it stays in one place throughout the year (and even year round in some cases), everything Mother Nature throws up, out, and around will eventually end up against the walls of your beautiful deck box. By knowing how you can protect and clean this piece of furniture now, you will be ensuring the protection of your investment for years to come, without all the hassle of constantly refinishing.
Take a look at your deck. Are there hoses strewn around? Are the grill accessories sitting on the patio table? How about the pool toys or chemicals, are they placed on the deck floor because you do not want to tote them to the garage? If you see any of these scenarios, or any others, then you should invest in a couple of deck boxes for storage.
If you have a wooden deck box, taking care of your investment may take several more steps before it gets easier. The materials that it is made out of will ultimately determine the best way to approach the sealing and cleaning of your outdoor furniture. While hard woods like cedar can take oil treatments to keep it protected, other woods (like pine or cypress) can be stained to give it an extra layer of protection, or even painted to your pleasure. Adding these protective barriers give your box a solid layer of protection against the elements, protecting from everything the world wants to throw at it and more. Plus, once your box has this key protective layer set up, cleaning can be as simple as taking a sponge and warm water to your box.

Of course you would not want too many people padding back and forth from the kitchen so with a deck box in place, you can easily provide a solution for this. You can also have cookouts with the use of a deck box. As you start with how to build a deck box, you might need to allot a budget for insulation inside the box should you also want it to function as an edibles' container.

Because they can be used just about anywhere for a variety of functions, they will end up saving you a lot of money and cleaning time down the road. While the benefits are nearly endless with a quality wooden deck box, there are five reasons why a wooden deck box is a worthwhile investment.
